Actress Ashionye Michelle Raccah, has said that homosexuality is not a disease and that Nigerians need to wake up to the reality that homosexuals are human beings as well.
Ashionye said this to QedTV at the premiere of Funmi Iyanda's movie, Walking with Shadows. Speaking at the premiere of the movie which is about a married man whose wife later found out he was gay as reported by LIB, Ashionye said people need to realize that a person is not made to be gay but is born gay.
“It’s high time we began to accept every human being irrespective of their sexuality. I’m a human being whether I am straight or gay. It’s high time we began to realise that we are basically just one and we shouldn’t judge. I know we have this 14 year sentencing in Nigeria but then again you can’t change a person whoever he or she is.
